Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba’s extra-marital activities debacle doesn’t want to die down.

Buhle Mkhize revealed that she had an affair with the minister last year. The public got to know about her when she posted her private conversations with Minister Gigaba’s wife, Noma Gigaba, on Instagram where she allegedly called her (Buhle) a prostitute. A day ago, Buhle penned an open letter about her affair with the minister, confirming what DRUM previously reported (Minister’s steamy ‘home affairs’, 22 October).

Buhle, who’s a stylist currently based in the USA, explained in detail her steamy affair with the fashionable minister.

Now, Minister Gigaba has also hit back releasing a statement on his Instagram defending his actions in the matter. The statement reads, “I did not want to address this as more pertinent issues such as building my family and serving my country are much more important. However, the source of this defamation has developed an unhealthy obsession with my family.”

He further stated that, “The more my family and I have attempted to be graceful and be above the attention-seeking slander, the more it has intensified. My family, in particular my wife, have been subjected to a protracted campaign of public embarrassment and cyber harassment.”

He adds that, “I could retort to exposing the fabrications and blatant inconsistencies in these allegations but I can only blame myself for befriending a person who had sinister motives. I regret exposing my family to such an individual but truly can only blame myself.”

Minister Gigaba further stated that he’s seeking legal remedies in order to protect his family. “I place on record that my priorities are serving my country and being a family man. These two decisions are the proudest that I have ever made. I have pledge my life to my wife, children and my country,” his statement reads. Repeating Noma’s sentiments, Minister Gigaba says they’ve moved on as a family and wishes that everyone else does the same.
